今天最可愛的新聞,會搭巴士的小白貓



正在努力讀書的某位愛貓人士在留言版留下了這則新聞的udn版,特來找出配上圖的原文報導,真可愛~~~~~~這蘇格蘭巴士怎麼這麼像大有巴士??

自己搭公車的貓 每周搭兩三次

英格蘭瓦索爾到伍爾弗漢普頓的三三一路公車,今年遇上一隻會自己搭公車的神秘白貓,每星期總有幾天早上,牠會固定在同一站上車,並在四百公尺外的下一站下車。

英國每日郵報說,這隻貓被三三一路公車司機稱為「麥卡維提」,靈感得自艾略特詩中敘述的一隻貓。牠一隻眼睛藍色,一隻眼睛綠色,脖子上有個紫色頸圈。

四十九歲的公車司機比爾今年一月首次看到這隻貓。他說:「很奇怪,第一次我只看到牠混在一群乘客中跳下公車,沒看到牠上車。第二天,我在邱吉爾路停車讓乘客上車,一開門就看到牠向公車跑來,一躍而上,跑到椅子下。我想乘客都沒注意到。」

比爾表示:「由於我前一天看到牠跳下車,所以我就繼續開我的車。我在下一站停車時,牠又一躍而下。我不知道牠為什麼搭這班車,但牠似乎很喜歡。我向同一路線的其他同事談起這事,他們也看過牠。」

這隻貓從一月首次搭公車以來,每星期搭兩三次,而且總在同一站上車,同一站下車,下車處有許多店鋪,包括一家炸鱈魚與馬鈴薯店。

十九歲的三三一路公車常客保羅說:「我在幾星期前注意到這隻貓。起初我以為有主人陪牠,但到了下一站就很清楚牠是獨自行動。牠坐在公車前面,耐心等待到下 一站後就下車。起先看到貓自己搭車會覺得很奇怪,現在已見怪不怪。我認為牠是好乘客,安安靜靜坐著,不打擾別人,然後下車。」

Mystery cat takes regular bus to the shops


Bus drivers have nicknamed a white cat Macavity after it has started using the No 331 several mornings a week.

The feline, which has a purple collar, gets onto the busy Walsall to Wolverhampton bus at the same stop most mornings - he then jumps off at the next stop 400m down the road, near a fish and chip shop.

The cat, nicknamed Macavity, has one blue eye and one green eye

The cat was nicknamed Macavity after the mystery cat in T.S Elliot's poem. He gets on the bus in front of a row of 1950s semi-detached houses and jumps off at a row of shops down the road which include a fish and chip shop.

Driver Bill Khunkhun, 49, who first saw the cat jumping from the bus in January, said: "It is really odd, the first time I saw the cat jumping off the bus with a group of passengers. I hadn't seen it get on which was a bit confusing.

"The next day I pulled up on Churchill Road to let a couple of passengers on. As soon as I opened the doors the cat ran towards the bus, jumped on and ran under one of the seats, I don't think any of the passengers noticed.

"Because I had seen it jump off the day before I carried on driving and sure enough when I stopped just down the road he jumped off - I don't know why he would catch the bus but he seems to like it. I told some of the other drivers on this route and they have seen him too."

Since January, when the cat first caught the bus he has done it two or three times a week and always gets on and off at the same stops.

Passenger, Paul Brennan, 19, who catches the 331 to work, said: "I first noticed the cat a few weeks ago. At first I thought it had been accompanied by its owner but after the first stop it became quite clear he was on his own.

"He sat at the front of the bus, waited patiently for the next stop and then got off. It was was quite strange at first but now it just seems normal. I suppose he is the perfect passenger really - he sits quietly, minds his own business and then gets off."
